As most of you know I hand stitch an exclusive line of dolls for a french quarter store "Ragin Daisy" often I have one or two on hand while i travel or am vending at a live show, these three MAT dolls came along on tour for me in California in August 2010. In just about every doll i hand make i put a eucalyptus nut that was planted in the 1860's by civil rights leader and feminist MARY ELLEN PLEASANT..http://www.mepleasant.com/
The JujU and LULU dolls are very close and enjoyed the trip..JujU had been a nudist prior to this trip and decided she'd like some classy nautical attire, in the photographs on the tree with them there hair magically glowed as you can see in the photo...
Lady V actually stayed behind so that can reside in CAlifornia at very good home...she was actually the first MArie Antoinette Tramp I had sewn....

I decided to get the drawing that JAck Shit did for the Oakland show, he drew a depiction of me inspired by Hecate in which she aided in our good luck for the show.The drawing is epic and I felt i wanted it to be a permanent fixture on my body... Joey at AlkiBeachTAttoo started it today it will colored in after the outline heels...
"Dime store Reality"....Marian Anderson of the Insaints
Walking the roads at night or visiting cemeteries during the dark phase of the moon, the goddess Hecate was described as shining or luminous.she is usually depicted as a "hag".. the awesome power of giving humanity anything she wished (or withholding it if she pleased)............enhancing her reputation as a spirit of black magic with the power to conjure up dreams, prophecies, and phantoms.
...Hecate's ability to see into the Underworld, the "otherworld" of the sleeping and the dead, made her comfortable and tolerant in the company of those most would shun out of fear or misunderstanding. In her role as 'Queen of the Night', sometimes traveling with a following of "ghosts" and other social outcasts, she was both honored and feared as the protectress of the oppressed and of those who lived "on the edge

I have been consistently publishing zines since 1994, originally my zine was "Cunt Fear" and by 2000 had evolved over to an Oblivious Nation. My soul purpose of starting the zines was to publish bands and peers around me so that they could be documented forever. It also evolved into my compulsive habit of taking photographs.
not of just the performers on the stage but of the audience and voyeurs surrounding the area.
I have made a conscious decision to publish my last issue of Oblivious Nation September 2010.
I may periodically publish other types of zines to cover occasions or particular events, I feel i really need to start focusing more on my static films and short videos as a documentation of magical beings surrounding me, it is more effective and more pleasing in my personal opinion.....
I am accepting contributions for this last issue: also contributions for anyone involved in Female Front shows for that zine please send to:
deadline: September 5th
